Workforce Insights From Equifax Workforce Solutions Reveal Increase in Voluntary Turnover in 2013

Groundbreaking Workforce Insights Deliver Key Data About Separation Causes by Industry and Geography

ST. LOUIS, MO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Equifax Workforce Solutions, a leader in human resource, analytics and verification services, today announced the introduction of Workforce Insights, which provides data on voluntary employment trends. This unique workforce research shows a growing trend in voluntary turnover, which increased 3.5 percentage points in 2013 from the previous year, despite persistent economic uncertainty and high unemployment trends.

Workforce Insights is a free online resource that provides employers with real-time access to important labor and employment trends. Based on transactional employment data, rather than self-reported and survey information, Equifax Workforce Insights indicate that more than 48 million job separations took place in 2013. Trends from 2013 indicate that nearly 40 percent of those employees left their jobs after less than six months, costing employers valuable resources, time and money in the process.

"In today's economic landscape, it is critical that businesses understand key employment trends to manage costs and to gain competitive advantage," said Mike Psenka, senior vice president of Workforce Analytics for Equifax Workforce Solutions. "By understanding turnover trends, businesses can make informed decisions that drive business growth. This research is just one way Equifax Workforce Solutions is helping employers understand and navigate the evolving employment landscape through unique and actionable workforce insights and innovative HR solutions."

The 2013 data also revealed unique insights based on geography, industry and employee separation causes:

  • Turnover rates were highest in Alaska, Wyoming, Oklahoma, Utah and Louisiana. While Utah had one of the highest rates at 53.6 percent, it also boasted the lowest percentage of layoffs in the country at 16 percent.
  • The vast majority of turnover in the retail industry (73.7 percent) was voluntary.
  • Employee dissatisfaction accounted for 19.5 percent of voluntary turnover in the real estate industry; which is 15.6 percentage points above the national average (3.0 percent).
  • Voluntary turnover due to another job opportunity was 24.2 percent in the computer and electronic manufacturing industry; that's 8.3 percentage points above the national average (15.9 percent).

These trends and more are available in "Employee Turnover Trends in 2013."

"Equifax is dedicated to delivering new workforce analytics insights on current labor trends and the solutions that will help our clients address them," commented Dann Adams, president of Equifax Workforce Solutions. "We combine unique data-based insights with regulatory thought leadership and best-in-class technology to help employers strategically manage their workforces for outstanding business results."
